Event Details

It’s not too soon to start preparing for next year’s growing season, and New Mexico State University’s Cooperative Extension Service is hosting a six-part online series on sustainable agriculture topics to help growers get a head start this fall.

Due to the global health emergency, the NM WSARE program will forgo the traditional NM Sustainable Agriculture Conference this year. In its place, a series of webinars will be presented that focus on the many aspects that make a farm sustainable in New Mexico. Topics include: Seed saving, preventing herbicide-resistant weeds, promoting beneficial insects, growing vegetables in NM, fruit tree pruning, and drip irrigation. The free webinars will be 3 to 4 p.m. every Thursday from Oct. 1 through Nov. 5.

In this week’s webinar, learn what it takes to be your own plant breeder and understand concepts of genetics and plant selection. Presented by Dr. Bradley Tonnessen, Program Specialist in Vegetable Extension.
